I was diagnosed with THYROID cancer on March 0f 2009. Had my thyroid removed and did the RAI treatment. I am currently taking 250 mcg of Levothroid. About one month ago I noticed that my tongue was getting stuck to my gums of my mouth at night. Know it seems to happen more often. At night when I wake up I have to force my tongue to move or else it feels like it is asleep or stuck. I went to the endo and he told me that it was that my Salivatory glands were damaged with the radioactive iodine. So, he says that it is part of the dry mouth that is what he called it. I am not so convinced about that. But, just wondering if anyone else has kind of the same symptoms.
